Briefly Post Meridian.

A bit of PM, with just time for a look in at Conder Pool, and a bit of time for some playing around to try for some piks at Cockersand. 


IP continues to monitor the goings on at Conder Green, and documents the inmates of the pontoon on Conder Pool with illustrations. His latest pictures show the intensity of the situation between the Common Terns and Oystercatchers, showing the male CT weighing up the young Oyks in his top pik, before attacking them in the bottom one....

Things can only worsen when the CT's hatchlings turn up on the scene.

Herring Gull Plover Scar. Pete Woodruff.

A small group of age assorted Herring Gull were with barely a total of 50 Ringed Plover and Dunlin on Plover Scar, whilst in the field behind me, five Stock Dove, 2 Reed Bunting singing, and Skylarks.

Reed Bunting. Pete Woodruff.

I always vowed I'd never combine photography with my birding. But I was quite pleased with this bit of improvised photography, the singing Reed Bunting was 1/3 mile away with a digi camera hand held to a zoom telescope lens.
